works for a speaker on politics like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? wax massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longer -- they were stained women or something of the sort, because they no longer could teach in the public schools of massachusetts as a married woman. so she was a mother and homemak

, a political development that might lead you to believe hillary clinton is running in 2016. >>> that is not exactly what we were looking for right there. we were looking for hillary clinton in the departure from the state department yesterday. and her parting words there were to the staffers which ended her four years as secretary of state yesterday. just before john kerry was sworn in to succeed her. as she moves on, "newsweek" proclaims clinton the most powerful woman in american history. in the digital cover story the reporter says "she has shown that women can wield official power and can do so with moral force equal to and in some ways greater than men." well, hillary:ton may become more powerful yet, at least in the hopes of my next guest. just 13 days into president obama's second term and 1,375 days from the 2016 election, two superpacs have already formed to support hillary clinton's potential campaign. and joining me now is the coe founder of the ready for hillary superpac and a member of clinton's 2008 virginia steering committee. thanks for being with me. >> i'm

bill clinton signed into law the family and medical leave act. you know, there are many laws that we pass here in washington that most americans never have reason to know or care about. the fmla, by contrast, has changed this country in profoundly important ways. it has touched the lives of millions of working families. it's almost hard to imagine today but 20 years ago, before this landmark law, workers had to risk their jobs and their livelihoods when family needs arose. there was no national policy for maternity leave or paternity leave. new mothers were sometimes compelled to return to work just days after giving birth. or to quit jobs they would otherwise have liked to keep. there was no law allowing someone to take leave from work to care for an aging, potentially dying parent or to care for a child with a serious illness. families had to leave their loved ones in the hands of others or quit their jobs and face dire economic consequences. there was no policy to allow a seriously ill worker to return to work after recovering from cancer or other serious health condition. all of
with secretary albright, as i do with the clinton administration in support of israel. >> in general at that time under the clinton administration, the you think that they were "and going way too far toward israel in the middle east peace process"? >> no, i do not, because i was very supportive of what the president did at the end of his term. in january of 2001, in fact, i recount that in my book. >> just to clarify, that is the sort of flip-flopper but i am talking about. that is what you said then, and you are changing you -- your mind now. >> that is not a flip-flop. i do not recall everything i have said in the past 25 years. if i could go back and change some of it, i would. but it does not discount the support i have always given israel and continue to give israel. >> and going to what you said today talking about iran as "legitimate elected government" you think that the election of this iranian government coming to power was free, fair, and legitimate? >> i noted the term "legitimate" was not the term i should have used. i should have used recognized. that is the more appropriate term. i
-dip recession in great britain. erskine bowles, former president clinton's chief of staff, has spent the last three years of his life warning of a coming financial crash if washington continues its reckless ways in dealing with medicare and medicaid. as bowles explains to audiences across the country, his prognosis is not based on ideology. it is instead a simple matter of math. and make no mistake. that simple arithmetic will doom the economic future of liberals, conservatives and independents alike unless washington starts planning for the future now. and yet we still get so much reaction, joe, from the segment that we did here on the set the other day with paul krugman. >> we had a great -- i thought we had a great conversation with paul krugman. and i was fascinated by his view, his world view. the thing that's frustrating, though, for me following that, and it's ironic because paul krugman said that actually politicians in washington can't walk and chew gum at the same time. i find that a lot of people that read and follow him can't walk and chew gum at the same time. and i don't think t

of the senators sent a letter to president clinton for reaffirming our solidarity with israel. i carried that their around. -- letter around. i remember it well. senator hagel is one of just four who refused to sign that letter. i am sure he will want to comment on that. in 2001, he was one of just two senators voting against the bill for extending harsh sanctions against iran. a year later, he urged president bush to support iran's membership in the world trade organization. senator hagel voted against a resolution designating iran's revolutionary guard corps, a group responsible for killing soldiers in iraq and afghanistan, as a terrorist organization. on multiple occasions, he has advocated for direct negotiations with iran, a regime that continues to oppress its people and doggedly pursue a nuclear weapon capability and employ terrorist proxies including hamas and hezbollah. senator hagel has been an outspoken supporter of nuclear disarmament and global zero movement. we are very sensitive to that. the president has said many times that he wants a nuclear- free world, and i know that
and the quote. a couple of points. let's go back to the ilsa vote. about the original vote during the clinton administration. and connect that to a comment i made in the world herald about they don't work. they are ineffective. and by the way, i've already noted for the record here that i have supported and voted for some unilateral sanctions. i think i noted three specific ones that i recall. but on your specific questions about the specific comment. just to give you an example of what i was talking about. you were not in the senate at the time. some were. but those who were here in the senate might recall the european union's reaction to that ilsa act. i was not in the senate when that was voted on original, so i didn't have a vote. but in 1988 the european union passed a resolution against the united states and threatened to take the united states to the world trade organization. as a consequence, secretary all bright had to get into this and as a consequence to that president clinton had to sign a waiver to allow a french oil company not to be part of that u.s. unilateral waiver. now, i'm

16.5%, and over a 30 year average is closer to 19%, or 20%, and during the clinton administration, the last time we balanced the budget, it was 19%, so they are lower than they have ever been, which to some extent i have looked at as a stark statistic when people say we need to have taxes that are lower. we have already been operating at an historically low level and the burden on government is greater than it has ever been. people over 65, they will be about 20% in 1980, it was 10% or 12%. it is one of the reasons that is part of a balanced approach -- that as part of a balanced approach i have been in favor of raising revenue. it should come from a broader base, but to say we do not need higher rates is to some extent ignoring the table -- the data. i always try to come up with a balance, regional approach bringing in both sides. in terms of private sector experience, i never made a decision based on tax policy, so to some extent that is a myth often put forward by people that do not have private sector experience. i never made an investment or a hiring decision a stun tax polic
